On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden, CoD World at War

November 11, 2008 -

The Orlando Sentinel reports that several members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will celebrate Veterans Day by gaming with U.S. troops stationed overseas.

Pro vs. G.I. Joe, the nonprofit group which arranged the event, reports that Madden 09 and the brand-new Call of Duty: World at War will be the weapons of choice. Tamps Bay CB Phillip Buchanon, LB Cato June, TE Alex Smith and CB Aqib Talib will take on service personnel in Germany, Japan, Kuwait and a secret Middle-east location to be revealed during the match.

UPDATE: Activision deserves some kudos here as well. In a press release the publisher points out that it supplied CoD:WaW for today's event and will continue to do so for future Pro vs. G.I. Joe matchups.

Re: On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden,

uh oh wheres JT to claim that now those soldiers are going to be killing machines! oh wait.. they were TRAINED to be that way... damn.... well one more lost for him. Well that was a fast one.

kinda funny though since JT claims to "support our troops" but then condemns anyone who plays games... and i can't think of anyone during my time that didn't play games (mostly Halo, Wolfenstein, and need for speed)

and yes i know he's outta the picture (sorta) but i still enjoy the random kick to the groin :)

heh reminds me of the tournaments my squad used to hold, enlisted vs commissioned. Voted for the game and almost always ended up in Halo 2... mostly since we had more copies of that than any other game.

oh.. and when we weren't forced to forfit due to having to get back to work (cheap arse officers cheat IMO) we usually won :)

Heh, I would never have thought of this kind of event myself, but it sounds like it will be fun for those involved.

Neeneko@james - yeah, the bar is low, but it still requires a DA that wants you to indict. This grand jury was so oddly handled I would not be surprised if the feds get involved.11/25/2014 - 10:19am

Michael ChandraThe Grand Jury isn't supposed to go "but there is reasonable doubt of their guilt, so no trial", right? I thought the whole idea was "there is reasonable doubt of their innocence, so let a full trial+jury decide."11/25/2014 - 8:41am
Michael ChandraExcept for when cops are involved. Which I never understood. In cases where police officers shot unarmed fleeing people in the back, how can you not assume there is a reasonable chance it was out of line?11/25/2014 - 8:40am
james_fudgeThe old joke is that a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich - that's how little evidence it requires. The bar is LOW.11/25/2014 - 3:19am
